Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’s annual letter to shareholders is always a must-read and this year he discusses, among other things, the role of a handstand coach, the fact that Amazon Prime now has more than 100 million members and also reveals (almost in passing) that more than 1,000 independent authors earned over $100,000 through Kindle Direct Publishing in 2017 — that’s $100 million and counting.
